Endless possibilities for compact living: Our furniture tips for smaller spaces
Decorating small spaces can be challenging. You want to live comfortably and fit all the pieces you need, but you don’t want the area to feel cramped or chaotic. As a brand founded in the compact city of Amsterdam, we understand small city living. That’s why we design furniture that can be customised for any space, including cosy studios and one-bedroom apartments. Here’s a round-up of a few of our favourite pieces for compact living to inspire you to make the most of the square metres you do have and create a space you love.
If you enjoy cooking and having people around for dinner, you shouldn’t have to compromise on your dining table, even when space is limited. Round dining tables are great for smaller spaces, taking up less space but still seating four comfortably. Our Butterfly Table and Column Table, for example, are round dining tables that are both eye-catching additions to any interior and are available in various sizes.
If you’re more interested in a rectangular dining table, a slimmer one might be your best option. At 160cm long and 90cm wide, the Slim X-type won’t take up too much space but will make a statement. Combine with a dining bench to squeeze in a few more guests at your next dinner party - and slide it under the table when not in use to maximise the floor space.
When it comes to a sofa, you might think size has to compromise comfort. Maximizing on a few larger items instead of many smaller items can create a more coherent whole. You might want to consider a slightly larger 3-seater sofa, or go for a 2 or 2.5-seater in combination with a lounge chair to create a more cohesive seating area. Our Cosy Sofa and Cave Sofa are available in various sizes and like all of our furniture pieces, can be customised to best suit your space."
For more inspiration, head to our new flagship store in Amsterdam on the Rozengracht 204, where we transformed one of the spaces into our dream apartment (measuring just 48m2). You’ll find a number of the pieces we have highlighted above, demonstrating that you don’t have to sacrifice style when designing for more compact spaces.
